8 natural remedies to get rid of under eye dark circles
Dark circles under your eyes can be a result of lack of sleep, depression, stress, aging, dry skin or hereditary problems.
People often ignore dark circles and try to conceal them under layers of make-up but that is not the real solution. The commercially available creams that calm to reduce dark circles are expensive and the results are not that great.
So, here are some easy home remedies that can help you get rid of dark cycles naturally:
1. Almond oil
Almond oil is very beneficial for the delicate skin around your eyes. Regular usage of almond oil will help fade your under eye circles.
How to use: before going to bed, apply a little almond oil over the dark circles and gently massage it into the skin. Leave it on overnight. Wash it off with cold water the next morning.
Cucumbers have skin-lightening and astringent properties that help fix those raccoon eyes naturally.
How to use: cut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Put the slices onto the affected skin area for about 10 minutes. Wash the area with water. Use twice daily for about a week to see results.
3. Raw potato
There are natural bleaching agents present in potato that can help lighten dark circles and get rid of puffiness around the eyes.
How to use: grate one or two raw potatoes to extract the juice. Soak a cotton ball in the juice and place it over your closed eyes. Make sure the juice covers the dark circles under your eyes as well as the eyelids. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse your eyelids well with cool water. Repeat once or twice daily for a few weeks.
4. Rose water
Rose water is an incredible ingredient for skin care. It rejuvenates the skin and has a soothing effect on tired eyes. Due to its mild astringent properties, it also works as a great skin toner.
How to use: soak cotton eye pads in pure rose water for a few minutes. Put the soaked pads on your closed eyelids. Leave them on for about 15 minutes. Follow this remedy twice daily for a few weeks.
Tomatoes have bleaching properties that can lighten skin to a great extent. They are rich in vitamin c and lycopene that are excellent for healthy skin
How to use: mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with a one-half teaspoon of lemon juice. Gently apply this mixture on the dark circles and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse it off with water. Follow this remedy twice a day for a few weeks. Simply using tomato juice will also work. Alternatively, you can also drink a glass of tomato juice with some mint leaves, lemon juice, and salt twice a week for best results.
6. Lemon juice
The vitamin c present in lemon juice can also help remove dark circles under the eyes due to its skin-lightening properties.
How to use: use a cotton ball to apply fresh lemon juice around your eyes. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and rinse it off. Do this once daily for a few weeks.
7. Coconut oil
Due to its moisturizing quality, coconut oil also promotes smooth skin and prevents wrinkles and fine lines under eyes.
How to use: massaging with coconut oil is an effective natural remedy to lighten dark circles
8. Tea bags
The caffeine and antioxidants present in tea can be highly beneficial for getting rid of dark circles as well as puffiness under eyes. The tannins, in particular, help decrease swelling and discoloration.
How to use: chill two used green or black tea bags in the refrigerator for about half an hour. Place one tea bag over each eye and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the tea bags and wash your face. Repeat once or twice daily for a few weeks. Be careful not to get the tea in your eyes.
